Workshop on SoNDe application in neutron detection

Start Date 17th Oct 2016
End Date 19th Oct 2016

SoNDe is a project for the development and construction of a high-flux capable neutron detector funded by the European Union within the Horizon 2020 framework. The development focuses on the following specifications:

  • high-flux capability, capable of handling the peak-flux of up-to-date spallation sources (gain factor of 20 over current detectors)
  • high-resolution of 3 mm by single-pixel technique, below by interpolation
  • high detection efficiency of 80 % or more
  • no beam stop necessary, thus enabling investigations with direct beam intensity
  • strategic independence of 3He
  • time-of-flight (TOF) capability, necessary to exploit maximum flux, with a time resolution in the µs regime
  • modularity, improving maintenance characteristics of today’s neutron detectors
